Goldmsiths, the University of London college home to one of the world’s most prestigious art departments, will soon build a public gallery behind that department’s home in South East London, The Art Newspaper reports.

In order to raise approximately three and half million dollars for the renovation, the newspaper writes, “the institution is asking its star alumni and emeritus professors, including Michael Craig-Martin, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Antony Gormley, Fiona Banner, Bob and Roberta Smith, Rebecca Warren and Ceal Floyer, to donate works that will be auctioned by Christie’s, possibly next year.”

An architect will be announced next week, with plans for construction to be finished at the end of 2015.
